I love how versatile green jackfruit is, you can create many delicious recipes from it. Like my Instant Pot Jackfruit and Potato Curry, Jackfruit Tacos, and Jackfruit Stew. If you haven't tried it as yet, I encourage to dive in and enjoy these amazing recipes.
I have been cooking with green jackfruit long before it became popular here in the USA, I discovered it in the frozen aisle and on the shelves of Indian supermarkets in New Jersey 15 years ago and the easiest thing for me to have done with it was to add it to curries back then. I loved it so much that I have 2 recipes in my Cookbook.
To make this BBQ Jackfruit wrap, it is super easy but the taste is so amazing. I start by cooking the jackfruit in barbecue sauce. You can use your favorite store-bought kind or try my Barbecue Sauce, I then make an aioli sauce with vegan mayo, crushed garlic, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. That's basically it.
